Explore the role of mobility in China’s recent economic growth. The list of dialogue participants are given in Appendix III and a summary of the stakeholder dialogue in Appendix IV. The objectives of the case study The objectives of this study are to assess the mobility challenges. Some specific comments from dialogue participants are presented in boxes at various points throughout the report. intercity and regional transport. emissions. Regional mobility in the greater Yangtze Delta Region and Shanghai The Yangtze Delta Region has the highest population density. Shanghai is now striding toward the objective of being a modern international metropolis. 1 . energy security etc) • Seek feedback on the key sustainable mobility priorities and policy measures to deliver “harmonious” mobility in China’s cities. • • Explore the extent to which this is narrowing the mobility opportunity divide within the cities Discuss the transport-related impacts arising from this growth and how these are impacting sustainable development in China (safety. In particular the study is designed to: 1. with a specific focus on Shanghai and the Yangtze Delta: • Consider the role of international trade. Learn from China’s experience in dealing with the challenge of making mobility sustainable in its rapidly growing cities: • Consider the role of mobility in Shanghai in driving economic growth and social progress and compare with several other key cities in China at different stages of development. The feedback from the stakeholders has been used in the preparation of this final report. opportunities and experience in Shanghai with reference to the Yangtze Delta Region. the largest gross domestic product and the most powerful development potential of all economic zones in China.

Railway transport accounts for about 50% of intercity passengers in Shanghai and about 5% of cargo transport.66 times that of 1990. Shanghai Pudong and Shanghai Hongqiao airports account for 70% of air passengers and 86% of the air freight in this region. The operated mileage in Shanghai has only changed from 259 km in 1990 to 269 km in 2005. Railway mileage per 10.110 kilometers in 2005. In contrast. the Yangtze Delta Region is one of the most important logistics centers in China. Thus. But its capacity is limited and railway transport maintained a deficit from 1997 to 2005. hundreds of highway routes and 10 main railways in this region. the efficiency of rail and road transportation between cities has not changed much recently. In 2005 major ports in the GYDR handled over one-third of the foreign trade cargo for China. The Shanghai railway plays an important role in the national railway networks. Intercity passengers in Yangtze delta region account for 20% of the nation’s total. a negligible increase in the last 15 years. It is the construction of passenger and freight transport systems that has made the high-speed development of the region possible.16 km. the service and functioning of regional transport have greatly advanced. Railways are better suited to passenger and longer distance freight transport than roads. However. Waterway transport enterprises have grown to be the economic power of the Shanghai transport sector. especially the ocean. The total highway mileage in Shanghai reached 8. Pudong airport will be extended to reach a capacity of 80 million passengers while Hongqiao will increase its capacity to 30 million by 2010. Since the 1990s. waterways. the road network length density of the greater Yangtze Delta Region (GYDR) is now higher than that of the other areas in China by area. Constrained by transport capacity and vehicle efficiency. 2 . and air transportation have improved a lot in efficiency. It represents the backbone of intercity transport for Shanghai. of which freeway mileage constitutes 560 kilometers. The highway mileage per ten thousand people in this area is only 20. it does not match the economic scale and size of the population. There are 11 major coastal and inland ports. especially for passenger transport. and the share of freight movement is also more than 10% of the total.8% of China’s average. with profits equaling some 75% of the total profit for the entire Shanghai transport industry in 2005.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Transport modernization and integration is an important component of economic integration in the Yangtze Delta Region and a precondition of realizing economic integration. Of these the Shanghai and Ningbo ports handled 70% of the foreign cargo in the GYDR area. especially freeway systems. As an international hub airport. 2. As a result. And the utilization rate of line section capacity approached 100%. 17 large and small airports.000 persons was only 0. one-third of the national average.

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Shanghai is a key international shipping and aviation center. the Yangtze Delta Region1. Faced with a complicated and volatile situation.217.8%. Shanghai urban transport Regarding urban transport in Shanghai.200 kilometers of carriageway length are classified as express and arterial roads. Forty-one percent of the investment was for metro construction. the rise of production prices and enterprise cost increases resulting from an appreciation in the RMB. and with the continued development of the manufacturing industry in GYDR. But the fast growth of motorization and the car industry promotion policy require large amounts of road space. a prominent contradiction of land resources. because of the long time delays in infrastructure construction and the city center’s high population density. Two enormous bridges are under construction as a new gateway to the north via Nantong and to the south via Ningbo. Shanghai can only connect with the other parts of mainland China through the Shanghai-Nanjing corridor in the northwest and Shanghai-Hangzhou corridor in the southwest. consistent with the policy of encouraging public transport in the city center and adopting motorization in suburban areas. about 50% were seriously congested during rush hour. Shanghai’s motorization is also increasing rapidly. during rush hour about 42% of arterial roads in the center of the western Shanghai area were congested. the GYDR must change its development path if it wants to realize the goal of sustainable development. Because of its geographical location. Expansion of the existing highways is unlikely to meet the huge demand for sustainable mobility due to high traffic concentrations on several corridors that pass through densely populated areas. The huge investments in transportation are only possible with the active role of the Shanghai government and the involvement of the private sector.9% of its GDP annually on transportation infrastructure. with the number of motorized vehicles increasing from 466. Shanghai invested an average of 2. airport-regional public transport systems. By the end of 2005. Over the last ten years. an annual growth rate of 20.000 to 2. Of 22 arterial road crossings under investigation. is in a key period of development. More integrated regional transport systems should be encouraged. such as sea-inland waterways. transportation congestion and resource constraints. and large scale metro construction is now 3 . up 84% over that of 2000. city planners have followed a strategy to constrain car use. The extensive construction of urban roads did lessen traffic congestion for short periods immediately after construction. the total mileage of city roads in Shanghai had reached 12.000 in 9 years. At present. port-rail. especially Shanghai. of which 7. a large demand for freight and passenger movement will be created. such as the parking policy and license plate auction system. According to statistics. It was recognized that a metro system may be the solution.227 kilometers.

According to the Third Transport Survey Report of Shanghai (2004). accounting for 54% of total trips.96 million passengers every day. traffic safety. The total passengers per day rose to 1. The local buses serve 7. the growth rate of motorized trips is far ahead of that of the personal trips. There are 18. As a result. It is because of non-motorized travel that road congestion is still acceptable to society. A long-term government commitment is also needed to control the increasing volume of car traffic. and the proportion of motorized travel has increased. The 45.9 km in 2005. and also the large-scale infrastructure still available for non motorized travel in Shanghai. and the number of deaths and injuries. At the same time. 4 . the metro is always seriously crowded. The gap between traffic demand and supply is widening. Traffic safety measures have been gradually strengthened.5 kilometers/trip to 6. There are 5 metro lines in Shanghai with 68 stations and a total operating length of 147. the number of traffic accidents increased progressively by 275%. especially line #1. of which the proportion of public transport rose from 20% to 24%. thanks to the contribution of land-use control with a high density and high mixture.000 seats and 948 bus/trolley lines with a total length of 22. Transport demand within Shanghai’s city center is increasing.000 km in Shanghai. and the direct pecuniary losses due to road traffic accidents in Shanghai followed a significant downward trend in recent years. Shanghai has witnessed substantial development in both transport supply and operational efficiency. Motorized travel is increasing even more dramatically. and non-motorized-vehicles dropped from 42% to 28%. for example fatal traffic accidents in suburb areas accounted for more than 85% of the total number in Shanghai in 2004. the total number of daily trips for resident was about 41 million.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study ongoing. the average travel distance extended from 4. including environmental protection. Traffic safety in the suburbs is still very serious. Public transport is now a priority in urban transport policy.000 taxies registered carry 2. The number of passengers serviced by the Shanghai metro system increased sharply from 2000 to 2005.63 million in 2005. One of the distinguishing characteristic of urban transport in Shanghai is that pedestrian and bicycle traffic is quite high. From 1980 to 2000. from 1995 to 2004 the proportion of the motorized trips in Shanghai increased from 28% to 40%. private motorized vehicles from 7% to 15%. And the low paid employees are still able to get to work at an acceptable time and monetary cost. with annual increases of nearly 37%. With the expansion of the city and the remarkable growth in urban activity space. energy consumption and social justice.180. the biggest increase is in trips outside of the central city. For example.000 buses with 1.48 million passengers daily.9 kilometers/trip between 1995 and 2004. transport development is closely connected with other aspects of sustainable urban development.

the annual daily average of inhalable particulates. CO2 emissions reached 150 million tonnes in 2004. If we cannot reduce the cost. 0. the low-income segment rides the metro much less frequently that the other income groups. low-income families will spend more time travelling. There is a need to develop a regional planning authority that would responsible for the implementation of plan. The construction of the metro is key to establishing a sustainable transport system in Shanghai. But success will not be measured just by its scale.One report has estimated that 86% of CO2 and 81% of NOx are from urban vehicle emissions in Shanghai. Of these the public transport privilege policies. With faster growth. metro system and freight rail link to the container port. The overall cost of transportation is increasing rapidly in general.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study In 2006. due to the limited land area and geographical setting of Shanghai. As a result. A two-way metro ticket costs a minimum of 17.051mg/m3 and 0. Greater Yangtze Delta Region comprehensive transport plan Due to the difficult nature of province-wide coordination between different government transport authorities. This rose to 15. Continue to strengthen key transport infrastructure construction Shanghai will continue to strengthen the construction of key transport infrastructure. 20 million tonnes more than in 2000.086mg/m3. This shows the need to cut the cost of urban transport. As a result. In 2000 only 3% of the family budget was spend on transportation and communication. SO2 and NO2 in urban areas was 0. some low-income families are being squeezed out by higher earning newcomers. highway construction is usually considered the simplest solution to implement to address transportation needs.7% of a low-wage worker’s daily income. But the main efforts will be put on mass-capacity transport modes. or provide the subsidy directly to the low-income consumer. such as the intercity express rail.000 km metro construction plan is very ambitious. construction will further divide whole society. parking charging policy and motorcycle limitation policy have so far been most successful. Even with great effort to encourage public transport through large-scale metro construction. Some important policies are analyzed below. The 1.6% in 2006. it is proving very difficult for Shanghai to provide enough traffic lanes to match the demand from surrounding provinces for freight and passenger transport. Key policy issues on sustainable mobility for Shanghai To solve the above problems.055mg/m3 respectively. but also by its impact on economic vitality and social justice. 5 . However. the Shanghai government has instigated many transport demand management policies. Data show that CO2 emissions were 138 million tonnes in 2002.2 With residential areas developing along the main transport axis. the license plate auctioning policy. a comprehensive transport plan should be prepared to integrate various transport modes over the whole GYDR. to areas with poorer transportation.

. keeping a balanced dynamic between road supply and increasing vehicle demand by. the license plate auction and parking policy. especially in suburban areas. However. Information technology has the potential to greatly improve the efficiency of existing transport infrastructure and make information on transport “more accessible and more transparent” for passenger and freight movement. this transfer is not obvious due to limited services and geographic coverage. In the past. In the context of the rapid expansion of urban space. the municipal government has anticipated a transfer of the long distance bicycle passenger to motorized public transport. The construction of the multi-modal transport system will face the challenge of institutional fragmentation. The soft traffic management measures. for example.3 The question is whether public transport can provide the same mobility service as a bicycle without an extra financial burden on the government? Or should people be forced to use a car even for short distance travel?4 How can bicycle riders keep their share of the road? Faced with these questions. The urban planning control system. although it is hard to consider it a successful operation on the whole. the ability to coordinate the various stakeholders within Shanghai. The intention is to fully leverage the advantages of various transport modes and build up a multi-modal urban transport system. As a result. the license plate auction policy only delays motorization. have not been fully explored yet. But there is an incentive to sell as much land as possible to generate fiscal revenues. this unique public policy is under great pressure from the car industry lobby. tide traffic lanes5 etc.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Coordinating between urban land use and transport It has been proven that land-use density and mixture are very important factors that impact on people’s travel mode choice. it is now very important to keep the characteristics of the pedestrian and bicycle transport modes in the city. Building multi-mode urban transport system based on public transport priority The municipal government has tried to promote the construction of transportation hubs to more effectively link all transport modes. Protect space for slow transport The bicycle is still the most sustainable mode of urban transport. Control of motorized vehicle Controlling the number of motorized vehicle has been a successful practice in Shanghai from the 1990s. so that suburban development should be encouraged along the public transport corridors. GYDR and the central government is critical to success. 6 . Traffic management The operation of “unblocking the road” (to speed-up the car traffic with wider roads. However. investments in traffic control equipment and stronger enforcement) has greatly improved the local government’s ability to manage traffic and the physical quality of traffic infrastructure. is working well to control unplanned and low-density development in Shanghai. many services and job opportunities were available in Shanghai within bicycle range. A new taxation system should also be introduced to encourage people to buy smaller cars for both environmental and road/parking space concerns. generally speaking. in fact. In addition. such as the flexible working hours schedule.

two years ahead of schedule. taxis began to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) was promoted on buses. the European I emission standards for light vehicles was implemented.e. The use of low-olefin unleaded petrol was promoted for motorized vehicles in March 2000 ahead of national implementation.. the European II emission standard for motorized vehicles was implemented in the city. On 1 March 2003. unleaded gasoline for motor vehicles was promoted in Shanghai. 7 . This restriction was extended to the surface roads within the inner-ring road on 1 October 2006. On 1 July 1999. high-polluting vehicles (i. According to new regulations implemented in the city center since 15 February 2006. In 1998. those not meeting European I emission standards) that have not received "the green license" are restricted on the elevated expressways.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Vehicle emission control On 1 October 1997.

In 2006. The YDR has become increasingly important to national economic growth. while the total number of inhabitants staying in Shanghai for more than six months totaled 18 million. while the total port import-export commodity volume comprises 25% of China’s total.72 million dollars compared to 2005. With only 1. The total port import-export volume accounts for about 10% of China’s total.9% of national GDP. the rising costs of raw materials resulting from the appreciation of the RMB.9 Today the YDR is facing a key period of development.

In other words the authorities should regard developing a fast and convenient transfer system as the pre-condition for constructing passenger transport hubs. the key lies in strengthening the construction of passenger transport hubs. 28 .Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study the competitive focus of various transport means. but also link up passenger transport between cities and urban public transport within cities. As far as passenger transport is concerned. The passenger transport hubs not only link up different internal modes of a certain transport means. especially the medium and long distance intercity passenger. highways and railways across provinces. Further development of oceangoing container shipping relies crucially on the distribution system of inland waterways. As a result there is a need for a comprehensive transport plan to maintain and improve the efficiency and competitiveness of this region.

Here there is an incentive to sell as much land as possible to generate fiscal revenue. of which the amount of transport to Beijing accounted for the largest proportion. 44 Shanghai’s transport network infrastructure has been greatly improved in recent years. development is regulated at the district and town level. such as post parcel transport. reaching 26%.5 Air cargo transport As many as 900 airplanes took off from and land at Shanghai’s airports each day in 2005 (of which 488 were in Pudong Airport and 412 in Hongqiao Airport). Shanghai’s airport cargo increased more than 5 times. With the eastern transfer of flights from Hongqiao to Pudong. Its total port handling capacity is increasing rapidly. As many as 402. from 30% in 2000 to 85% in 2004. the cargo and mail handling proportion of Pudong International Airport climbed year after year. regular freight trains and double-deck container trains.5: Shanghai airports cargo transport growth Source: the 11th five-year-plan of Shanghai Air Transport In 2002 as many as 211.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 3. and the percentage of its foreign trade and container cargo transport are rising.4. the combination of construction of intercity freeways and railways in the YRD as well as the increases in train speeds six-fold. its cargo transport structure is optimized continuously. the development of Shanghai’s ports and inland waterways is in full swing.958 tons of air cargo and mail were transported out of Shanghai. has expanded the economic influence of Shanghai to the hinterland area. reaching 23%. of which Asian countries accounted for the largest proportion. As a result Shanghai has been become a new international shipping center. has greatly strengthened the relation between Shanghai and neighboring areas. hence there is little incentive to go for high-rise buildings and dense forms of land use.5 Conclusions Comment from stakeholder dialogue: In Shanghai it was pointed out that the highway authority is often in conflict with the planning authority. 3. This is not conducive to public transport that requires relatively dense populations to make it efficient and accessible to many people. The opening of new train services. It was also pointed out that municipal developments are limited to the outer ring road.4. and industrial buildings tend to be single story. Compared to 1995. .

The number of deep-water berths cannot meet the developing tendency of large and specialized ships. While the comprehensive transport system of Shanghai has made great strides. • Shanghai has only two external railways: Shanghai-Nanjing and Shanghai-Hangzhou railways. their capacity cannot meet personal travel requirements occurring in peak times such as festivals and holidays. the construction of terminal buildings and cargo terminals have not been delivered to the expected standards. 45 . and the container sea-railway combined transport capacity has developed slowly. • The construction of the comprehensive connecting ground transport facilities for the airports still need to accelerate. and the port distribution system is not perfect. especially the distribution system of the Yangshan deepwater port area which needs to be improved. Shanghai’s inland river-ways are constructed at a slow speed. it still has the following problems: • The present highways are not synthetically related to Shanghai’s urban development and are not suitable for the town system as determined by the new round master plan of Shanghai. • • • Shanghai’s container wharfs continue to be operated under an excessively heavy load. their cargo transport facilities cannot meet the new cargo transport demand.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Shanghai’s air transport capacity is also growing swiftly and its airports have joined the list of the world’s busiest airports. • The infrastructures and hubs such as the Shanghai airport runways.

The three-year Action Plan of Developing Public Transport Priority from 2007 to 2009 of Shanghai.3.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 4.31 The specific measures are that the central business district provide few parking spaces and charge a higher price to control vehicles from entering this area. Shanghai should continuously increase the public transport modal share. Shanghai will invest about 110 billion Yuan in pushing forward this action plan. the public transport trips will account for more than 60% of the motorized vehicle passenger trip.654 license tags were granted.3. Shanghai carries out the “public transport first” policy30 where land use for public transport shall be ensured first. 4.1 Public transport priority policy According to the public interest priority and the highest efficiency principle. and lots of automobilists licensing their cars in adjacent cities and using them in Shanghai. This policy has alleviated the contradiction between road supply and traffic demand to a certain degree. such as a decrease in demand for cheaper vehicles. which was compiled as required by the strategic objective of “public transport first”. the other areas in central area provide a higher number of parking spaces to allow more vehicles to enter this area. public transport shall be operated efficiently. achieving for example a lower motorization rate than Beijing. The 58 . and the public transport travel between any two points in the central city will be completed within one hour. in order to control the fast growth of motorized vehicles in Shanghai and reduce the pressure on urban traffic. 4. construction and management of its parking facilities with a transport areas differentiation policy. the license tags of private cars in Shanghai have been auctioned by tender with a reserved price. Shanghai has changed this into public auction without a lowest price for the license tag limit. The license tag auction has also brought unexpected influences. The aim of the transport model is “taking the public transport as the main mode and private car as the assistant mode”. and for more than 33% of the total trips. Since 2000. and the transfer convenience of public transport shall also be ensured. Shanghai will realize the full coverage of 500-meter service radius of public transport stops in the central city and suburban towns. By that time. According to this plan. The auctioning system is different from that of Singapore.2 The license plate auctioning policy Since 1994. 68. has been formally put into operation. More bus services will be provided in suburban areas. and the average successful bidding price was as high as RMB 46. public transport spending shall be invested first. The license is valid for life once it is purchased and can be transferred to other people. The auction policy of license tags has restrained the increase in car ownership in Shanghai.3.

Therefore. the influence of motorcycles on traffic order is reduced. The specific measures are that motorcycles are forbidden to travel through the roads of the central city. Shanghai has drafted and implemented policies to gradually reduce motorcycles.4 Motorcycle limitation policy As motorcycles can travel more flexibly and faster. a lot of speeding motorcycles can disturb the normal transport order.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study peripheral area focuses on solving the parking conflicts in residential communities. workplace parking. The parking facilities are divided into different types: residential parking. However. The suburban area provides sufficient parking places in connection with town construction to match a policy of less control on using cars. The consideration has been taken to implement various policies according to the different characteristics of parking types. For example. the punishment for cyclists violating traffic regulations is more serious. strictly controlling the on-street parking through the administrative and economic measures. the relevant policies of “switching the motorcycle plates to car plates” have been prepared and implemented. We should draft different strategies according to different situation we are facing. and strengthened the oversight of motorcycles.3. giving priority to construction of bus depots. As a result. 59 . the roads and areas where motorcycles are forbidden will be expanded gradually.

There is a feeling that if this can be solved in Shanghai. the proportion of congested roads in the city center is more than 40% and the congested intersections are over 50%. The buses have been renewed. the outlook for sustainable mobility in other urban cities in China may also improve. The services of the taxi industry have been standardized and its management strengthened. traffic accidents.4 Conclusions The urban transport system of Shanghai. Traffic flow on Shanghai’s roads has increased so sharply that in peak times. such as traffic congestion. there is complex pollution of petrol and soot. bus priority”. air pollution. Overall the pollution resulting from car emissions in the center city is becoming more and more serious although some adjustment of energy source structure has been implemented. but congestion is still serious after short periods of relief. especially its public transport. which we never thought possible before. The car plate auction and higher parking costs have delayed fast motorization in Shanghai. Besides air pollution.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 4.32 Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Many of the issues related to land use and transport integration in Shanghai are similar to the rest of China. the Shanghai public transportation system has been greatly upgraded with large-scale metro construction. There are also many problems facing urban transport in Shanghai. 60 . is gradually going towards sustainable development under the guidance of the governmental policy of “transport first. spatial segregation and so on. new higher grade vehicles have been introduced. In addition. people have recognized the importance of the bicycle system in city center from both efficiency and environment concerns. After long a period where the widespread use of bikes was controlled due to the perception that they caused the low efficiency of traffic circulation. and the service quality of public transport has been considerably enhanced. The heavy investment and quick-pace of construction of the urban transport infrastructure has created a road network with sufficient capacity.

Local telephone departments and long-distance telecommunication departments have left the former PTB to form “China Telecom”. while the other keeps the name of “China Telecom” and is the only operator in the other provinces. telegraph. Therefore. the only GSM network operator in China. the PTB constituted thus three independent departments. it has entered directly into the age of wireless communication and high-speed internet access. A few years later. The post business is undertaken by the new Post Bureau who kept its nature of public service operated by the government. information transfer is often referred to as “virtual” mobility. During this rapid technological progress. This structure was thereafter thoroughly transformed in 1998 by the second reform which separated completely the telecommunication activities from the post activities. Shanghai began to equip itself with the most advanced information and communication technologies. the mobile communications business was separated from “China Telecom” to create “China Mobile”. Before the 1990s. we could assume that the influence of ICT on the organization of every day life in Chinese urban society might be generally comparable with that in Western cities. a company which is run under market rules. In some cases. “China Unicom” was founded for developing a national CDMA network as a competitor of “China Mobile”. Today. Since the development of the Pudong Special Economic Zone and the launch of large-scale infrastructure construction. With the existing Post Department. the transfer of information constitutes an important part of the urban mobility system. Within less than 20 years. the post and telecommunication sector in Chinese cities has also gone through four important reforms of its organization and management. when Shanghai lagged far behind in urban infrastructure construction investment. telephone and fax. Based on Shanghai. in order to break the historical monopolizing position of “China Telecom” in the national market of fixed telephone and to promote benign competition in this field. information exchange in the city mainly relied on traditional modes: post. Information and telecommunications services Besides the movement of people and goods. In the 1980s. The telecommunications sector was further restructured by two important reforms to constitute four national operators: • • • In July 1999.

The four biggest international logistical companies - DHL, UPS, Fedex and TNT, have obtained the major share of the express delivery market in China. They mainly face business-type customers and present an obviously competitive advantage in the field of international transportation and express delivery. At the local scale, the express mailing service of the Shanghai Post Company faces a challenge from numerous medium and small private delivery companies. The investigation conducted by Shanghai Investigation Brigade of National Statistical Bureau from 2004 indicated that the number of private delivery enterprises in Shanghai was 467. They provide not only door-to-door-service to individual customers, but also undertake the delivery tasks of some Internet sellers. In 2006, the total business volume of express delivery realized by them was 164 million pieces (excluding the business volume in the branches in other provinces and municipalities), their daily average business volume is 450,000 pieces, accounting for nearly 90% of the total express business volume of Shanghai, and 7.8 times the express business volume operated by Shanghai Post Company in the same period.

Telecommunication: Installed telephone & mobile phone

In Shanghai, telecommunication technology has upgraded very fast. The statistical data on infrastructure (Table 5.2.1) cannot show the improvement in quality and efficiency of services, but they definitely demonstrate the popularity of telecommunication in the daily life of people (Table 5.2.2). For telephones, the total number of users increased nearly four times in the past decade, increasing from 3 million in 1996 to more than 11 million in 2006. The development of household telephones is the most remarkable: its popularity rate has developed from less than 50% to 147.7%, that is to say, a large number of families have installed more than one telephone line. The growth of mobile phone users is still swift. The number of mobile phones users increased almost forty times in the past ten years. The popularity of mobile phones reached a penetration rate of 88.7% in 2006. This growth does not show any sign of slowing down. In the last four years, the annual growth rate of mobile phone users has always been above 10%.

Investment in metro transport
Brief

In the period of the 10th Five Year Plan, the major metro projects invested around 10 billion Yuan. This includes No. 4 metro line (12.8 billion Yuan), No. 8 metro line (11.8 billion Yuan), No. 7 metro line (9.2 billion Yuan) and No. 9 metro line (10.9 billion Yuan). According to the Shanghai Metro Basic Network, from now to 2012, the Shanghai Shentong Group will invest more than 160 billion Yuan to build up 13 metro lines with a total length of up to 510 km. They will form the basic network of metro transport in Shanghai and will carry 40% of the daily passenger, becoming the backbone of the Shanghai public transport system.

7.2.2

Reform of investment and financing system of Shanghai metro transport

In the period of the 10th Five Year Plan, Shanghai will spend 45.43 billion Yuan to construct the metro, equivalent to 1.37% of GDP. It is impractical to follow the old path to only employ the Shanghai Metro Company to take all of the work. Accordingly, the Shanghai government decided to deepen the reform of investment and financing system in April 2000, carrying out the reform of 4 Separations, namely separating investment, construction, management and supervision of the metro. It enforces the government managing function on public investment, drives the constructing and managing of metro into regulated, orderly and sound market competition, and sets up an effective government supervision system at the same time. On 28 April 2000, companies such as Shentong Group, Shanghai Metro Line Construction Co. Ltd., and Shanghai Metro Incorporation, Shanghai Modern Rail Transit Co. Ltd. were set up respectively. Shanghai Metro Line Construction Co. Ltd was set up to construct the metro. Shanghai Metro Incorporation was the department of management in metro. Shanghai Modern Rail Transit Co. Ltd was supervising the metro. Shentong Group was set up to be the principal part of investment in rail transport, owing assets and management rights. The 4 Separations solved the financing problem. In 2000, it was difficult to attract money to boost metro transport construction. After the foundation of Shentong Group, by means of shareholder of land, loan and financing and bond releasing, it formed a multi-source financing system, and the metro transport also expanded from single line to a network. When the financing problem was solved, new problems appeared, such as poor safety and supervision of metro system, different ticket systems in No.1, No.2 and No.3 metro lines, and inconvenience of metro transfer, etc. Therefore, the Shanghai Metro Line Company merged into the Shentong Group in 2004, which means that the investment body and construction body merged into one company, 4 years after the implementation of 4 Separations.

7.2.3

Investment and financing for constructed metro in Shanghai

The main body for No.1 metro line includes Shanghai Jiushi Corporation and Shanghai Chengtou Corporation (called Chengtou Corporation for short in the following). The two companies took charge of financing for construction and reimbursement of the loan. No.1 metro line was transferred to Shanghai Shentong Group (called Shentong for short in the following) after construction. Then Shentong injected the assets of metro train and fare collection system of No.1 metro line into Shentong Metro which has been listed in stock market. The main body for No.2 metro line is Chengtou and districts Government Company along the line, who took charge of financing for construction and returning the loan. Chengtou put this investment into the stock of Shentong Group after the No.2 metro line was completed. The investment from the district along the line was purchased by Shentong Group. The main body for No.3 metro line is Shentong Group and districts along the line, which form the Shanghai Metro Transport Pearl Line Development Co., Ltd. Shentong Group controlled the project company. Afterwards, No.4 and No.5 metro lines follow the same mode of that of No.3 line.

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study

The total investment for No.1 metro line is 5.744 billion Yuan (95%), while business loan is 0.3 billion Yuan (3%); total investment for No.2 metro line is 11.158 billion Yuan, among which the capital fund is 7.708 billion Yuan (69%), loan from foreign governments is 3.45 billion Yuan (31%) (Jiushi and Chengtou taking charge of borrowing and returning); total investment for No.5 metro line is 3.125 billion Yuan and is all a capital fund; the total investment for No.3 and No.4 metro lines is 22.56 billion Yuan, for which the capital fund is 7.1 billion Yuan (31%), the remainder is from project financing. Generally speaking, the first phase of metro transport construction mainly depended on investment from government. According to the regulation, the minimum fund prepared for new construction project will be 40% of the total investment. The proportion of the capital fund far exceeds the standard controlled by central government, so Shanghai’s government takes much pressure to raise capital fund in the past.

Conclusions
Comment from stakeholder dialogue: There is general consensus that mobility is in danger of significantly degrading in Shanghai due to the lack of integration as the urban area expands. It is not clear whether the situation is serious enough yet to drive an institutional response. Participants felt that more economic pain from a significant decline in competitiveness may be required.

The huge investments in transportation are only possible with the active role of the Shanghai government. Shanghai’s economy is growing fast, and investment in transportation construction has expanded continually. In the 10th Five Year Plan, Shanghai will invest 80.04 billion Yuan in transport facilities, an increase of 74% compared to that in the 9th Five Year Plan, on urban roads, highways, bridges, tunnels and the metro. It is because of the large scale investment lasting for quite a long time that the transportation systems in Shanghai have been upgraded tremendously. In the past, metro transport construction depended on investment from government, placing much pressure

on them to raise the capital funds. The involvement of developers and local government in metro and road construction has proven to be the only way to sustain huge investments in metro transport infrastructure.

New regulation for speed control is needed to ensure the safety. Enormous investments on urban transport facilities are car-oriented rather than human-oriented. (3) Non-motorized vehicle system There are about 10 million bicycles in Shanghai. due to the longer distance travel. (2) Preferential tickets By the end of June 2007. so that the interests and rights of bicycle riders are seriously affected. people can enter metro network by one bus from suburban area. the number of bicycle lanes has been reduced. improper station locations. forcing bicycle riders to ride on sidewalks. early ending of operation in the evening. bicycles are more common in Beijing. 8. etc. Comment from stakeholder Road construction in the city center areas cannot relieve the congestion as expected. According to the plans. “Research On Non-motorized Vehicle Transport Planning in Central City of Shanghai” was conducted in June 2006. With the high density of buildings and population in the city center. However. 112 . by 2010. Government should take action now to control the environmental problem. after they have become a reality. dialogue: It would be better to act now rather than deal with various and increased negative impacts later. Comment from Stakeholder Dialogue: Electric mopeds are getting more numerous in Shanghai. only when better public transport service is provided for the disadvantaged living in the suburban area. Recently the number of electric bikes is growing very fast.5.4 Reflections on the disadvantaged (1) Suburb resident travels The Public transport system in periphery areas is still far from developed. In order to change this situation. crowding on the bus. the city of Shanghai had implemented preferential ticket prices for transfer on all the 396 bus lines within the inner ring and new encouragement policies will be promoted soon. can convenient mobility be ensured for the residents in more remote areas. The growing number of motor vehicles and increased traffic volumes have degraded the road service level in recent years. people are more easily exposed to the concentration of pollution.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 8. Therefore.

especially in rural and urban periphery areas where there are fewer jobs and services available and a direct subsidy is needed for them. The big increase in transport expenditure may be affordable for the rich people but will limit opportunities for the poor. Therefore. to promote energy efficiency. passenger and freight transport will continue to increase. The bicycle is the most efficient mode of transport for short distance travel and energy savings. the city needs to further enhance rail and water transport and to expand their transport capacity. For a long time in the future. In addition. motorization is becoming the major factor impacting energy consumption for the transport sector with increasing demand. In Shanghai. rail transport needs more attention. adjusting the mode of transport to lower the energy consumption rate and promoting renewable alternative energy will become the main ways to reduce GHG emissions. and to actively promote the development and use of alternative energy sources.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study Also. The proportion of energy end-use consumption in the transport sector rose dramatically against total energy consumption. And the city also needs to improve environmental protection and energy saving standards in vehicles. Public transport is also quite favorable for energy savings. We must keep the bicycle system and the matching built environment. 113 .

9. roads severely congested. there will be 300 km of exclusive bus lanes.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 9. railway hubs. the highway is usually considered the simplest solution. railways and other transport modes. transport demands in Shanghai have rapidly increased.1. the intercity express railway system will be gradually constructed so as to alleviate traffic tension on the Shanghai-Nanjing and ShanghaiHangzhou corridors and to further consolidate the dominant role of railways in intercity passenger transport. combined with the rational allocation of resources. together with 400 km of metro. is making it very difficult for Shanghai to provide enough traffic lanes to match the demand from the surrounding provinces for freight and passenger transport.1 9.44 dialogue: We need to make overall plans and take all factors into the consideration for waterways. 114 . Shanghai will also gradually introduce an exclusive bus lane system. Regarding freight transport system. In terms of intercity passenger transport. constituting the backbone network of the urban public transport system. As a result a comprehensive transport plan should be prepared to integrate the various transport modes over the whole GYDR. the government will further strengthen the construction of high capacity roads and construct arterial freight transport networks connecting ports. and logistics parks and advanced manufacturing estate. such as Pudong railway.1 Policy and special issues Analysis of Shanghai’s transport policy Continue to strengthen key transport infrastructure construction In recent years. Apart from road projects. urban transportation facilities have become highly saturated. the metro system and freight rail to link to the container ports. However the limited land and geographical setting of Shanghai. By 2010. Public transport construction will be the key concern and investment will be prioritized to further metro construction during the Eleventh Five-year Plan. Comment from stakeholder Due to the difficulty of province-wide coordination between different government transport authorities. The key point is the efficient use of resources. airports. are also under construction. such as the intercity express rail. dialogue: A new logistics center for containers outside Shanghai has been proposed. Shanghai will continue to strengthen the construction of key transport infrastructure. exclusive railway freight transportation lines. The containers would then go by rail to and from the port of Shanghai. Comment from stakeholder But the main efforts will be put on mass capacity transport modes. and the density of suburban road network has remained low.

The metro construction plan is very ambitious. Regulation should be strengthened to encourage land development at a relatively high density as well as mixed-use development. decreasing in building density and height in the city center). the city center is heavily polluted along major traffic routes. But success will not just be measured by its scale. lack of reliability (bus). hence there is little incentive to go for high rise buildings and dense forms of land use. Shanghai will strengthen planning control and implement a transport impact analysis system. 115 . Suburb development should be focused on the strategy of urban development guided by public transport. where there are also many people. guaranteeing the land reserved for public transport interchange facilities and enhancing the capacity of transfer facilities to encourage new development along public transport corridors. Will there be a huge government deficit? And will it be affordable within the limited family budget available? 9. However there is the scattered industrial land development in suburban Shanghai.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study The construction of the metro is key to establishing a sustainable transport system in Shanghai. The urban planning control system. With the decline of the environmental quality. is working well to control unplanned and low-density development. and industrial buildings tend to be single story in suburbs in China. but also by its impact on economic vitality and social justice. lack of service frequency (even for the metro).2 Coordinating urban land use and transport Coordination of land use and transport will be key to sustainable development. Although the basic public transport service can be provided to the newly developed areas at the urban edge. In accordance with the principle of “dual increases and dual decreases” (increasing in green space and public space. in order to promote public transport and reduce travel demands.1. generally speaking. With the high building density and heavy traffic. smarter mobility management schemes should be fully explored to shift the mode choice from cars. can we still keep the higher urban activity density in the city center where people will still prefer to Comment from stakeholder dialogue: There is an incentive to sell as much land as possible to generate fiscal revenue.

It has been proven that land-use density and mixture are Comment from stakeholder dialogue: The example of Singapore was raised where high-density living is encouraged and car ownership discouraged.

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study

stay for living, working or recreation? Controls on vehicle emissions and guarantees for the quality of city center should be very important. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Land-use planning is seen as key to solving the mobility issues in Shanghai. Many of the issues related to land-use and transport integration in Shanghai are similar to the rest of China. There is a feeling that if this can be solved in Shanghai, China too may improve sustainable mobility in other urban cities.

9.1.3

Control of motorized vehicles

Controlling motorized vehicles has been a successful practice in Shanghai from the 1990s to keep the dynamic balance between road supply and increasing vehicle demand. It is a very unique public policy under the great pressure from the car industry lobby. With the accelerated construction of the urban road network, the government will still implement quota auctions on motorized vehicle licenses to control the amount of motorized-vehicles, thereby trying to keep the operations of road network at a reasonable service level. The government adjusts monthly licenses according to urban transport status and purchase prices of licenses. The license auction system also has its negative influences. Although the city implements policies such as travel limits on non-local licensed vehicles during rush hour on elevated expressways, the number of non-local licenses purchased by local residents has been growing by year, leading to an outflow of a large quantity of road construction and maintenance fees to other places. The city will consider other measures such as road congestion charging, fuel tax and parking limits as the main policy instruments in the future. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Chinese people now tend to buy big cars instead of small cars, the media and policy should encourage the small car. Government vehicles should also be limited. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Governments play an even more important role in developing countries as consumers have not yet reached the same environmental awareness and mainly want individual means of transportation.

With the increasing motorization in Shanghai (as the car license will be valid for a long time) the policy only delays over fast motorization, but what will happen in next ten or twenty years? A new taxation system should also be introduced to encourage people to buy a smaller car instead of a big car.

Building a multi-mode urban transport system based on public transport priorities

The municipal government has tried to promote transportation hub construction to consolidate public transport routes and network through these hubs, to improve transfer conditions and to expand service coverage area by the public transport system. By constructing transfer hubs, the city can more effectively link all transport modes, fully leveraging the advantages of various transport modes and building up a multi-modal urban transport system. The construction of the multi-modal transport system will face the challenge of institutional fragmentation, and the ability to coordinate the various stakeholders within Shanghai, the Yangtze River Delta region and central government will be critical to success. Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Each stakeholder has a critical role to play to improve mobility: • • • Governments should set a framework, provide education and investment for infrastructure Private companies can provide various mobility related technologies Research institutions and universities can collect and analyze data, put trends in perspective on urban planning, infrastructure and safety related issues, and develop research projects • • Media has also a critical role to provide a positive image of public transportation (e.g. in Bogota where they advocated in favor of the bus rapid transport system) Cooperation between these various organizations is needed.

9.1.5

Protect activity space for slow transport

The government has tried to progressively guide long-distance bicycle rides to transform into public transport, improve traffic conditions and prioritize the bicycle functions for shorter trips and for connecting to public transport. It should further separate motorized and non-motorized traffic, create conditions for reconstruction and construction of bicycle lanes parallel to motor vehicle lanes and gradually form regional bicycle lane networks. It is also necessary to promote public parking facilities for bicycles in downtown areas and in public transport hubs. The government should strengthen regulations for mopeds and encourage moped/electric bicycle riders to take public transport. Highly polluting mopeds have been replaced. By the end of 2005, the city has eliminated the use of fuel moped for environmental concern. The bicycle is still the most sustainable mode of urban transport. Many services and job opportunities are still available for residents within bicycle (e-bike) range. The policy trying to transfer the long distance bicycle passenger to bus will be very difficult to realize. The slow speed of the buses and the coverage of metro lines cannot compete with the bicycle for short distance travel. In the last ten years with the 13% drop in bicycle share, congestion has not been improved. If we totally transfer the traditional built environment into wide streets and big blocks, can public transport provide the same mobility as the bicycle without an extra financial

117

Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study

burden to government? Or should we force people to use the car even for short distance travel? The characteristics of the walking and bicycle oriented built environment is very important now for more sustainable mobility. Can the bike keep its mode share is the challenge.

9.1.6

Traffic management

The operation of “unblocking the road” has greatly improved the traffic management ability of local government and the physical quality of traffic infrastructure, such as the CCTV system with many monition camera and traffic counting loops has been widely installed, the road intersection has Comment from stakeholder dialogue: ITS should be encouraged in improving urban mobility for car traffic and also for public transport, such as in Europe and South Korea.

been widened in order to speed up the traffic. However, the operation could not be considered a successful on the whole. The traffic management measure, the software, had not been fully explored as suggested in the dialogue, such as the flexible working hours schedule, updating the traffic signal, etc. The achievement of information technology can also greatly improve the efficiency of the existing transport infrastructure and make the transport more accessible and more transparence for passenger and freight movement.

he next World Expo will be held in Shanghai in 2010 and it is estimated there will be 70 million visitors. To accommodate the extra demands, several projects are under construction or in planning, such as the Hongqiao airport transport hub, intercity rail system etc. The Hongqiao transport hub station is scheduled to be put into use in 2009, occupying an area of 13.22 km2. After its implementation, it will integrate modernized transport facilities including Beijing-Shanghai Fast Train, Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line, Pudong Maglev Line and five metro lines. It will become the important channel for Shanghai to reach the whole country and play an important role for development of the tertiary industry in Shanghai.45

Shanghai-Hangzhou maglev line

The Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line is under planning and will extend for about 175 kilometers. The total project budget is about 35 billion Yuan. The Zhejiang section will extend for about 105 kilometers, all elevated, to Hangzhou East Station via Jiaxing Station. The Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line is defined as urban-suburban line, with its normal speed reaching 450 km/h although it will run less than 200 km/h in the central city.46 According to the original schedule, this project should be finished in 2008 and put into operation in 2010 before Shanghai Expo. However, due to the lack of an environmental assessment, progress on this project has been delayed.

(1) Construction of metro transport Three metro lines will connect to the Expo site with a carrying capacity of 78 000 passengers/hour. The networks will cover main cities in the regions and develop 1-2 hour urban circular space around the cities of Shanghai. the total mileage of intercity rail transport will reach 815 kilometers.

As a result the transport should be carefully planed and managed. with rate of punctuality up to 90%. and reach 5. Yangtze River Delta region and Pearl River delta region” has been draw for the period from 2005 to 2020 The target of theses plans concerning the GYDR is set up to construct main framework of intercity rail transport network with Shanghai as the center. It is predicted that by 2010. Nanjing and Hangzhou By 2020. daily average visits will reach about 800.2. The driving speed could reach above 15 km/hour in rush hours. Yangtze River Delta region intercity passenger travel was over 2 billion passengers. (2) Bus lane for city bus and Expo bus Shanghai will try to build a 300-kilometer exclusive bus lane (110 kilometers in central area) by 2010. The Shanghai-Nanjing intercity express train will travel for 80 minutes while the trains stopping at major stations will travel for 96 minutes.000 and 800.3 Transports during Shanghai Expo 2010 During 184 days of Shanghai Expo in 2010.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 9. 119 . A survey shows that the visitor distribution by day will be extremely uneven. the space and time distances between cities will be greatly shortened.47 9.3 Intercity railway planning in Yangtze River Delta region In 2004. this number will increase to 3. Intercity rail transport in the Yangtze River Delta region will be operated like a city bus in frequency and ticketing. During Shanghai Expo 2010. Shanghai-Nanjing and Shanghai-Hangzhou lines as the wings. per peak day and per extreme peak day are anticipated at 400. The train will travel at 250-350 km/h.000 respectively.000.

The transport plan of Shanghai Expo 2010 is not only aimed at the success of the half year event. There will be several transfer gates for people to park their car far away from the expo site and take public transport to the site. Shanghai will grasp this opportunity to construct a multi-modal transport system. There are not enough hotel beds for all of the visitors.1: Mass transit network plan in Yangtze River Delta area Source: On Mid-Hub-City and Subsidiary-Hub-Cities of N-H Line 120 . but also to upgrade the transport system for the whole city. About 5-8% of the visitors will get to the Expo site by boat.6.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study (3) Water bus People can also take boats to go around the Expo site in 2010. Several water gates will be constructed. We should think of building accommodation facilities in the peripheral new towns and also providing good public transport linkage from the new towns to the expo site. (5) Accommodation service in the peripheral new towns There will be a huge demand for accommodation during the Expo period. (4) P+R (Parking + Ride) hubs Shanghai will also construct transport transfer hubs with large capacity. Figure 8. including entirely upgrading the transport system and smoothly integrating urban and rural areas. This strategy will also be consistent with the Shanghai metropolitan spatial strategy to encourage the development in suburban town.

4 Conclusions Comment from stakeholder dialogue: Shanghai may be heading for a crisis. “The planning authority needs to be sized appropriately to the mobility issues they are trying to solve” Among Shanghai’s transport policies. the policy to focus on freeway construction and to comparatively overlook the construction of national and provincial roads had led to problems in that the transportation capacity of national roads is saturated while the freeway flow is too low in some sections. This needs coordination. protect slow transport and build a multi-modal transport system will certainly benefit sustainable development of the urban transport system. control automobile development.Mobility for Development -Shanghai Case Study 9. urban transport policies should be weighted towards aggregate efficiency and capacity as well as environmental influences. For future development. So there are still challenges in achieving operational efficiency and sustainability of the transport system. The World Expo in 2010 provides an opportunity to upgrade and integrate the Shanghai urban transport system within the Yangtze River Delta Region. The planning authority needs to exercise control over a larger area than the current administrative boundaries. 121 . the practice to put public transport as a priority. At the same time.

Session 1: Sustainable mobility The first plenary session was chaired by Mr. What additional role might rail-based transport (urban and/or intercity) play in improving sustainable mobility in China? One table discussed this topic How important is it to pursue an integrated approach to achieving sustainable mobility in China? Two tables discussed this topic. The introductory session was followed by the first panel discussion on sustainable mobility. The last presentation was by Professor Pan Haixiao who summarized the findings of the Shanghai case study on sustainable mobility. Jacques Toraille. Director.

Ms Wang started the session with the reasoning behind GM’s engagement on sustainable mobility in China. This was followed by Professor Lu Huapu who summarized the work that Tsinghua University is doing with BP on sustainable urban mobility in China. Chreod Group Inc. the planning authority needs to exercise control over a larger area than the current administrative boundaries “the planning authority needs to be sized appropriately to the mobility issue they are trying to solve” • Example given of railways which are controlled nationally with little or no control from Shanghai although exception now likely to be made with the first regional railway likely to be built in the YRD. As a consequence there needs to be constraints on the number of motorized road vehicles in cities. The last presentation by Mr. and Mr. Topic 2: What additional role might rail-based transport (urban and/or intercity) play in improving sustainable mobility in China? • Japan was seen as a successful example of a country that has developed shorter 140 . Edward Leman. • Also felt that Shanghai may be heading for a crisis. Regarding Shanghai he noted that “I am unaware of any place in human history that has built so much road infrastructure in such a short period of time”. Director. • • • • • Initiatives such as flexible working hours can reduce peak flows Pedestrian movement should be prioritized first in city plans Safety equipment needs to be improved within mobility infrastructure Focus should also be placed on large transportation hubs and the public should be involved in consultation process related to mobility planning. The presentations were followed by interventions from each of the chairpersons from the morning table top discussion that presented the views of each group. Edward Leman examined why mobility matters by sharing a perspective on the history and future direction of integrated land and transport planning in metropolitan Shanghai. David Peng. The key points made for each discussion topic are listed below in the order in which they were shared. Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility for GM China. President. Senior Deputy President for AIG China. Topic 3: How important is it to pursue an integrated approach to achieving sustainable mobility in China? • • Integration between transport and urban planning is essential Chinese cities are investing heavily in infrastructure but this is not keeping up with demand no matter how many roads are built. Shanghai albeit unique. The panel comprised Ms Iris Wang. goods and services in a sustainable way. See separate presentations for more details.

China needs to develop smaller and less energy intensive vehicles. Divergent and conflicting institutional priorities also raised. • • • Within Shanghai the metro dominates. regional and national level. • • Road management and administration also identified as areas that could be improved. The railways are actually unique as there is only one body. Considerations should be given to how smaller companies can comply with the stricter regulations.Appendices distance rail transport. Topic 1: Are the economic and environmental impacts of road transportation threatening to get in the way of economic growth? • • Recognition that mobility is critical for economic growth but also has adverse and negative implications. transport and urban planning. Suggestion made for government to set visionary targets. Example given of Shanghai where government removed the monthly ticket system and people moved away from public transport to private modes (Bike). • Issue of institutional silos was raised where decisions are not coordinated across institutions. while the railways are not important Approval process for new rail investments seen as bureaucratic and full of problems There are also limited statistics on the railways although this comment was disputed by some participants. Belief that many more people would use public transport if service was better. • Point also made that government expected more people to move from bicycle to public transport when more have gone from bicycles to private vehicles as they view this as giving more personal freedom (as the bike did albeit for shorter distances). Recommendation made to engage industrial associations in the process to avoid conflict of interests at individual company level • • • • Auto industry has seen rapid growth in China and expectation that a prosperous auto-industry would contribute to the long term economic development of China Recognition that limiting private vehicles is a controversial issue in China Recommendation made to improve the professionalism of logistics operations One of key issues is the allocation of investment levels on private and public modes. They exist for Shanghai and Beijing but not for China. Example given of some cities that promote the use of larger vehicles over smaller vehicles to optimize use of available road space without taking into account the environmental considerations. Example given of Sweden with a vision of “no road accidents” Question raised as to whether companies would consider changing the incentive system on company cars and encourage management to use public transport. China needs to develop emissions standards. 141 . Also noted that co-ordination is easier said than done due to the high number of institutions and agencies at a municipal. • • • • Question was raised on examples of cities that have been successful in delivering a sustainable mobility system France was given as an example of a country where there was now under one Minister responsible for sustainable development. • Policy implementation is the role of government but it needs to take into account the views of key stakeholders.

Dr. Eads and Professor Pan summarized the main discussion points from the dialogue. There is likely to be much to learn from Shanghai for other cities in China and elsewhere 142 . Trucks may not always be the best solution. Bangalore is thriving and growing rapidly but investing significantly less per capita in infrastructure than Shanghai. Bangalore and Shanghai.Appendices Summary of the day Dr. Eads who had been involved in all of the previous dialogues involving the WBCSD on sustainable mobility noted some of the difference and similarities between Dar es Salaam. Shanghai has grown so much and so fast and we are fortunate that this growth has undergone a lot of analysis and research. Dar es Salaam is very poor and struggling with many aspects. Recommend one administrative authority for transportation and urban planning in the region • • • • Recognition that planning alone is not enough and mobility controls have also to be put in place in the urban areas The walking and bicycling environment needs to be secured and prioritized Land use needs greater control in the suburban areas and transportation should be integrated into the suburban planning Freight transport needs further consideration from both an energy efficiency and environmental standpoint. Despite the stark differences they also share the following characteristics: • • • • • In all cases mobility is critical to development All are congested albeit the absolute levels of mobility services are very different All need to significantly improve the integration within city planning Governance is a critical issue – it is not just about technology Clear that the cities could learn from one another. Professor Pan noted the following: • • In China transportation is always linked to roads – it should be broadened to multiple modes In the YRD the economic linkages go well beyond the administrative boundaries.
